US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Futures sharply pare losses after jobs data

Dec 7 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures pared nearly all losses on Friday after data showed a slowdown in November U.S. jobs growth, which could support expectations of fewer interest rate increases from the Federal Reserve in 2019.

At 8:38 a.m. ET, Dow e-minis were down 13 points, or 0.05 percent. S&P 500 e-minis were down 2 points, or 0.07 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were down 5.25 points, or 0.08 percent.

Moments earlier, Dow e-minis and S&P 500 e-minis were down about 0.2 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were down 0.26 percent. (Reporting by Shreyashi Sanyal in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
